Renting in Chicago

The City of Chicago is home to a diverse community, world-class universities, and more than a dozen attractions. It is the third most populated city in the US.
However, living in Chicago is not cheap. While it’s not as expensive as cities like San Francisco, it’s still 23% higher than the national average. But however costly it might seem, it doesn’t mean you should pass on a lifetime opportunity like joining one of the renowned universities here or accepting a job offer.
Short–term rentals are an excellent solution for your accommodation needs —for students who need flexible lease dates or people relocating for work. If you opt to sublease in Chicago, finding a furnished apartment is the best way to start your life in “the Windy City.”

June Homes can help you find a short-term furnished apartment as you find your footing in the city.

Finding a Furnished Apartment in Chicago

Chicago is a vast city with many neighborhoods with diverse cultures and experiences.
Lincoln Park, Gold Coast, Lake View, The Loop, and Mount Greenwood are among the most luxurious neighborhoods in Chicago. Rental costs here are on the high-end, but you get to enjoy the perks such as security, first-class eateries, pretty parks, and luxurious shopping.

Uptown is a hotspot for dynamic nightlife and entertainment. Lovers of Chinese culture can tour Chinatown for the best experiences in Chinese culture and cuisine.
If you love colorful murals, Humboldt Park has an endless parade of them, plus traditional dishes and cultural events rooted in Puerto Rican culture. 
Logan Square is a trendy, artsy neighborhood great for creatives. And if you want a vibrant downtown feel, South Loop offers all the perks with attractions like museums and music venues.
Uptown, South Shore, The Island, and Pilsen are some of the most affordable neighborhoods.

However, Chicago is popular for its high crime rates. As such, avoid West Garfield Park, Washington Park, Englewood, Riverdale, Grand Crossing, and North Lawndale, as they’re some of the most dangerous areas in the city.
